Susan delivers a high-impact concert as only a woman with her resume can! She was Tony-nominated as Broadway’s original “Belle” in Beauty and the Beast, critically-acclaimed as “Sally Bowles” in Cabaret, NY’s latestThoroughly Modern Millie, is a “go-to” voice for Disney and other major film animation studios, and has appeared with over fifty orchestras on stages such as Carnegie Hall, the Hollywood Bowl, Lincoln Center and the Kennedy Center!   The New York Post calls her “electrifying,” New York Magazine, “divine,” and Variety says, “Egan’s soprano is beguiling in the extreme,” – just three reasons why symphonies have brought her back again and again!

Symphonic Reviews:

“…time should have stood still so that every terrific Egan moment, and they were all terrific, could have been savored, if not for eternity for at least a very long time. Bouncy, pert, full of life, Egan brought to Reno’s River Pops presence, chutzpah, a big voice, heart and lots of interpretive razzle-dazzle. Egan has star power and such a winning way… she easily won over a tough-but willing-to-listen crowd, and plied her gift of song to the hushed audience she held in the proverbial palms of her hands. From a sultry “All That Jazz,” through a wistful “It Might as Well be Spring,” a brassy “Johnny One-Note,” and a haunting “I Dreamed a Dream” the Egan touch made each song glisteningly new and fresh. [She sang] a dramatic and touching “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina” and a charmingly acted and sung “Adelaide’s Lament” from “Guys and Dolls.” A beautiful rendering of “Beauty and the Beast” was sandwiched between a smashingly sung “Don’t Rain on My Parade,” and one of those knockout performances of “Cabaret,” that helped make Egan’s Reno debut not just special, but thrilling.”

— Nevada Events (Reno Symphony Orchestra)

 

“[Egan] is insanely gifted: her ability to belt out a number matched by a winsome charm and endearing sparkle filled the arena. The voice just soars, and when she scales it down for an introspective ballad the results are irresistible. The night belonged to Egan. Whether in ballads like “It Might As Well Be Spring,” or “Maybe This Time” (from the film version of “Cabaret”) or a surprisingly powerful “Don’t Cry For Me, Argentina,” she was absolutely marvelous. The contemporary musical theater scene was represented by a number from “Thoroughly Modern Millie,” which Egan did on Broadway, and by the closing “Defying Gravity” from “Wicked.” All defied criticism.”

— Long Beach Gazette (Long Beach Symphony)

 

“[The conductor’s] vigorous leadership set a swinging, high-octane energy level that was remarkably matched as Egan soloed in “Sooner or Later” from the movie “Dick Tracy.” The soprano’s charisma and captivating vocal style immediately impressed. Her multi-faceted characterizations from leading roles in Broadway’s “Thoroughly Modern Millie” and “Cabaret” were electrifying.  But Egan’s most memorable moment came as the reticent bride singing “Getting Married Today” from Sondheim’s “Company.” Her lightning-quick lyrics with an auctioneer’s skill and panicked reactions were priceless.”

— Salt Lake Tribune (Utah Symphony)

 

“Susan Egan [was] delightful no matter what [she] sang at Severance Hall and possess the pipes to do tender or belt-’em honor to any musical-theater fare. Purely in song terms, she’s a delight, able to negotiate the music with ease and send the emotional aspects far across the footlights. With gems by the likes of Irving Berlin, George and Ira Gershwin, Cole Porter, Jule Styne, Stephen Sondheim, Jerry Herman, Jeanine Tesori and John Kander and Fred Ebb, she used her clear soprano and sure dramatic instincts to vibrant effect in “Maybe This Time,” “Look What Happened to Mabel,” and “Gimme Gimme” from Thoroughly Modern Millie, one of the shows in which she starred on Broadway. Wistful? Egan wraps her voice around “It Might as Well Be Spring” (from ” State Fair”). Ardent? Savor the tenderness with which she shapes “If I Loved You” (from “Carousel”). Funny? From the way Egan sang “I Cain’t Say No,” she would make an adorable Ado Annie in “Oklahoma!” She is a beacon of enchantment.”

— Cleveland Plain Dealer (Cleveland Pops)
